We’re running a competition on Twitter to promote our January Sale. Here are the terms and conditions.

  1. This promotion is open to UK residents aged 18 or over, excluding employees of O2, or any of its subsidiary companies, their families, agents or anyone else connected with this promotion. No third party entries, bulk entries or entries submitted by agents will be accepted. O2 reserves the right to verify the eligibility of entries. O2 may require such information as it considers reasonably necessary for the purpose of verifying the eligibility of an entry and the prize may be withheld until and unless O2 is satisfied with the verification.
  2. Entries not complying with these terms and conditions will be invalid.
  3. There are ten prizes to be won, 5 x £200 worth of One4all gift cards and 5 x £250 worth of One4all gift cards. These will be issued in bundles of £50 gift cards and do not expire as long as the cards have a balance on them. Voucher terms and conditions apply: http://www.one4allgiftcard.co.uk/One4all_Terms_and_Conditions.aspx. The promoter is not responsible for the voucher terms and conditions.
  4. On the day of the competition there will be January Sale competition tweets from @O2 which contain the hash tag “#O2WhatWouldYouDo”. To enter the competition to win £200 worth of vouchers you will need to respond to a tweet containing the hash tag above which asks what you would do with the £200. To enter the competition to win £250 worth of vouchers you will need to respond to a tweet containing the hash tag above which asks what you would do with the £250. The exact wording of the tweets may vary but they will contain these hash tags and will ask these questions.
  5. Your reply must be on the day O2 tweets with #O2WhatWouldYouDo, and you must include #O2WhatWouldYouDo with your suggestions. The closing date for receipt of entries is 23:59 on Friday 28th December 2012. You can enter with a tweet, a photo or a video, but your entry must be received via Twitter with the correct hash tag.
  6. O2 will choose ten winners – five people who suggest what they’d do with £200 and five who suggest what they’d do with £250. Winners will be chosen based on criteria including but not limited to the quality of their suggestion and how feasible it is to carry out using the One4all gift cards, how humorous it is and how original it is. For each competition (the competition to win £200 worth of vouchers and the competition to win £250 worth of vouchers) the top five valid entries in the opinion of our panel will each win the prize for their competition.
  7. Winners will not be required to carry out their original suggestion with the gift cards and O2 does not guarantee the winner’s original suggestion will be possible to carry out with the gift cards.
  8. Winners may be asked what they are doing with the vouchers and asked for pictures/videos/text updates for the purposes of O2 publicity.
